Making a VCD using Nero Burn (to show a slide show on TV using my DVD player) is very simple, except it seems to have a 99 file limit. So, I thought I would use the NTI CD-Maker Deluxe that came free on the cover disk for PC Advisor Magazine November 2003. Does everything it says. "The complete and easy cd burning solution" Music, Data, Photos, Video etc. On install, it doesn't like Nero burn so it deletes some of Nero files to enable it to install. OK, I thought so what. When I tried to make a VCD and add 244 jpeg photos all I get is an error message for every file saying something like "not a valid mpeg file". Well of course they aren't they are jpeg stills. So, is this another hyped up programme or am I doing something wrong? All I want to do is make a slide show that contains more than the Nero limit of 99 files.
To all. I have irfanview but it doesn't actually do the burn, or if it does, I haven't found it yet. I also have Ulead DVD from a free cover disk but it also has a limit of 99 slides, although I did notice it also said you can have 99 shows with 99 in each. That's about 10,000 altogether, but maybe not on the free version. I will give Ulead some intense practice. At the moment I have only seen a friends effort of a VCD done with Nero, but only about 40 to 50 slides on it, it seems pretty good to me. I haven't even got a DVD player yet, but I am getting into it.
